What is your fav tweak/mod?

Just curious as to what tweaks/mods zeners have done to their systems and how it affected the sound quality.

I guess we have to define a "tweak."  I've done no mods myself, I'm just not schooled in the techniques of soldering etc.

If Mapleshade's Samson Rack, maple platforms and cork/rubber supports and Tube Anchors are "tweaks" they are permanent, very effective parts of my systems.  As are Herbie Audio Lab's Isocups and isolating speaker cones and Haloes.

Howdee Lon

I am also a user of the tube dampers from herbies.  Great stuff!!  And a tweak that really works.

Yes Dave, they do!  He has a lot of different varieties now, but the original ones I bought years ago work just fine.

So do his Isocups.  I used to Mapleshade Triplepoints and those are great but the Isocups seem to just have a "less crisp" warmer presentation.  And any time I think "Ah I don't need those" and take them out. . . they're back in in a day.

I have Herbie on speed dial.

I use Herbie's tube dampers, iso cups, tender feet, little glider feet under ERR radials was the biggest bang for my buck yet, herbie's grunge buster turntable mat was not something I had to have, some other Herbies little dot stuff under turntable motor and herbie stanless steel plates under turntable spikes.

I also like the mapleshade maple isolation platforms, mine are the 2" and I finished them myself to match my hardwood floors. They sit on mapleshade iso blocks.

A good thing to do is make sure your wires are run where signal and power lines don't run parallel with each other. I was very careful routing my signal wires. I also use a hospital grade isolation transformer with surge protector power strips by Panamax.

I have quite a bit of room treatment so much I had to remove some to improve my sound. Most of the stuff I have left is made from Dow Corning rigid fiberglass covered in fire retardant open weave cloth.
